Overall Satisfaction

  • Report visualization - data can be visualized in many different ways with interactive charts and graphs
  • Data detail - Birst provides drill downs that can show a lot of detail in the data
  • Ease of use - reports are intuitive to drill down into, even for non-technical people, as long as you have some excel experience
  • Column mapping, make it easier to remap changed column names
  • Allow data input through Birst - Birst is only a data viewing tool. It would be nice to allow users to input data, e.g. let users select accounts out of a list inside the tool and save that information directly to the data behind the view for other users to see.
  • Better customer service for outside partners - reports can be made available for outside vendors/partners to view directly and updated frequently, rather than through email.
  • Better employee efficiency through data visualization - employees find the reports easy to use and can get answers to their questions quickly.
The tool has been a success with the business stakeholders.
Birst is excellent for visualizing data, but not for data interaction. If data input is required, Birst is not recommended.
